I’m watching an online course for WordPress development and at the beginning I attached the css file the exact like what the instructor did and tested it by adding some styles and it worked fine

Then when I start making some menus in the header.php the css file stops when I checking it with dev tool by chrome, the style.css is exist in “sources” but it’s empty even if I’m sure that the style.css isn’t empty I tried to watch the whole course again to apply every single line and got the same problem and I tried to delete the xamp and reinstall it and the same problem

    You're missing a slash »/« before style.css.

    Can you be more specific about what you mean by "it stops"? I can think of multiple things that could be ranging from a PHP syntax error, to broken CSS. Being able to see the contents of header.php would be helpful. Also, what's the name of the file shown in your screenshot?

It looks like all you need is to add a trailing slash so the directory is correct.

Solution: change 'style.css' to '/style.css' in your second wp_register_style() call on line 7.
